A Galaxy of Her Own

Libby Jackson will discuss her hugely popular book A Galaxy of Her Own, containing fifty inspirational stories of women who have been fundamental to the story of humans in space.

From Ada Lovelace in the nineteenth century, to the women behind the Apollo missions, from the astronauts breaking records on the International Space Station to those blazing the way in the race to get to Mars, A Galaxy of Her Own reveals extraordinary stories, champions unsung heroes, and celebrates remarkable achievements from around the world.
